ANCA Gallery Artbus, City Walk 1 to 20 December 2018
Visitors to City Walk in Canberra can enjoy a visit to this exhibition of gouache monoprints and acrylic on paper. With background work on the bus walls made directly from timber with all its gnarls and whorls, Dionisia has then created ten prints which derive from the rings and patterns of trees, with a lower layer made by dipping int opaint.
The exhibition itself is open for visits Wednesday to Sunday but an added pleasure is to be had on weekend afternoons from Dionisia’s workshops for young and young at heart on the grass just beside the bus. Various paper based activities are on offer – a peaceful respite perhaps from Christmas shopping.
